So accommodating but one needs to book very important, amazing ambience amongst the vineyards, have great food and wine, service was good it felt like we were in cape town away on a wine farm amongst special friends and family. The 3 course meal was the best along with their great wines.

Great news for Vegans, the Abingdon wine is a Vegan wine and they make really nice Vegan meals on request. nice setting in the garden, on chairs or a blanket.

Highly recommended for a lazy Sunday lunch. Make sure to book your table under the Oak trees surrounded by the vineyards. Service was brilliant. Food delectable! The Estate wine was lovely.

Stopped out of curiosity, beautiful dining place, food looked very good, Both fireplaces burning and was just a little bit to warm inside for us, but had some wine tasting and was a nice experience. Good history on the wines etc..

We popped in to Abingdon Vineyard for the very first time, on a whim. late last Saturday afternoon, and had THE MOST DELIGHTFUL experience. We tasted many different wines produced on the farm and all were equally excellent. Jane and Ian, the owners, were so hospitable and friendly. We will always make a point of visiting again, at any time... More

We stopped at Abingdon out of curiosity and found ourselves at the bar sitting down for a tasting of the wines made on the farm. We were served by the Owner himself who gave great insight into the wine, the history of the farm and the vineyards. Absolutely impressive and a fantastic surprise. The wine is fantastic as well.

Heard great things about the Abingdon wine farm but really can't attest to it. With no one picking the phone it seemed reasonable to just drive there but the bad reception and service of a more than haughty Mrs had us turning back just as soon as we came. Perhaps the food is good...but wouldn't support a business that has... More

We were unable to assist these three clients for lunch as the restaurant was fully booked and last orders had already been placed as it was after 3pm. Despite our best efforts to answer all calls that come in during the lunch period, it is sometimes impossible on busy days. We did however, offer the guests the opportunity to do... More
